Summary
Seventy-foot waves batter a torn life raft 250 miles out to sea in one of the world's most dangerous places, the Gulf Stream. Hanging on to the raft are three men, one with nine broken ribs who is hypothermic and on the verge of death. Trying to reach these survivors before it's too late are four brave coast guardsmen battling hurricane-force winds in their helicopter. When they arrive they are astounded to find that the monstrous seas have waves reaching eighty feet. Once they commit to the rescue, they find themselves in almost as much trouble as the survivors, facing one life-and-death moment after the next. Also caught in the storm are three other boats. Of the ten people on these boats, only six will ever see land again. Spellbinding, meticulously researched, and told with edge-of-your-seat immediacy, A Storm Too Soon is a vivid and harrowing account about the powerful collision between the forces of nature and the human will to survive
